Culture is one of the most valuable yet often least appreciated commodities we have. It’s about shared experiences, bringing different people together to share a common interest. Culture creates personal connections – to societies, communities, identities and, most importantly, to other people. At its strongest, it provokes a feeling of belonging.

Culture can be seen, heard, tasted and experienced; it can be passed on visually or orally from one generation to the next. As such, our cultural heritage is a bridge from where we have come from to where we are going, a legacy we don’t own but rather borrow from future generations. This is where the unique nature of philanthropy has a major role to play, to ensure that culture is both an asset to be enjoyed in the now and a legacy to be appreciated in the future.

In short, culture matters.

Taking place during the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, the 29th EFC AGA and Conference will be a cornerstone of Philanthropy Week – a series of exciting exhibitions, topical sessions and thought-provoking site visits. Brussels, a city synonymous with diversity, will be both host and gateway into an exciting world of culture – artistic, linguistic, architectural and much more besides – to celebrate its intrinsic value and the zest that it brings to life.
